She'll Be Coming 'Round the Mountain takes the popular folk song to new heights of silliness. A serenading cactus begins our tune, inviting us to sing along. The "She" in question is a pint-sized cowgirl whose legend grows with the song.

The creative verses for this familiar song are great fun for my three-year-old. We've sung this one together many times. It also has illustrations in the back for the hand motions, which is helpful when reading through the second and more times.
